Agree to a certain extent, but not good enough to get us out of this league or make the footballing link with the ball cohesive enough between defence and midfield. Need better to get promoted..


So you want two ball playing centre backs? The current title favourites have Mad Gav Gunning in there. Waterfall was excellent on Tuesday at Halifax for me but just needs a bit more pace to his left to compliment him.

Still find this so hard to accept - that Gavin Gunning is playing at this level for a team doing well!!!

He was good enough to get the Gimps out of this league.


He was playing with Sean Raggett..

My view is that after Towler got dropped the cohesiveness between defence and midfield completely disappeared and we resorted to going longer than previously in the season. Passing from the back rather than lumping it matters at any level. Waterfall although great in the air and strong in the tackle, is still relatively slow and ball watches in our own box. Start making a strong case for many more players and you'll end up back with the same team that we've got now. There's better than Waterfall in this division, I've seen at least half a dozen, if not more..

I agree there's probably better. I don't think anybody has two better though. So find someone to compliment him because when he had that person, in Towler, they looked like a Rolls Royce pairing for this league. We need partnerships and a team not a load of individuals and to start all over again.

Nobody suggested building a team round him. You were the one building a team and I gave you the name of a National League winner who, with Towler, had a great start to the season.

I certainly see him as at least the equal of Maguire Drew in his particular position.

So because you're losing the argument you're going to make stuff up to argue with?

I'm not sure they did, but at least Towler could pick a pass between the lines. Our early season results flattered us because of the opposition. Defending was still woeful at Maidenhead, Bromley, Wealdstone and Altrincham when we were top..

Having someone like Waterfall affects the whole DNA of any side, you either go one way like Lincoln did which was very direct or you go the other. Anything else is a compromise if you're trying to get promoted. Not popular but it's what I think. Football's gone way beyond one stopper one quick partner, one big target man, one nippy partner, etc etc

Anyway, don't post much nowadays.. I've said my bit for a while..
